The charity sent a message to ITV via twitter after the comic opened up about his ex Rebecca Humphries on the show.
Seann’s comments have caused Women’s Aid to send a message to ITV
Seann’s ex Rebecca called him ‘toxic’ after their split
The organisation tweeted: “Imagine experiencing gaslighting by a partner, undergoing therapy, and then watching that person garner sympathy on national TV?
“We ask @ITV @imacelebrity to consider in their edit not platforming alleged abusers minimising their actions on screen. Solidarity with survivors.”
It comes after Seann discussed the fallout from his kiss with his Strictly Come Dancing parner Katya Jones on Thursday night’s episode.
He called the scandal “the worst moment of my life”.
The comedian finally opened up about his snog with Katya as he was grilled by his co-stars on falling for the Strictly curse in 2018.
Seann, 34, told his I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here campmates that he was “ended” by his “poor ex-girlfriend” in an online statement.
Rebecca Humphries was left devastated in 2018 when Seann cheated on her with his Strictly dance partner Katya on a boozy night out.
Recalling the event to campmate Sue Cleaver, Seann said: “Me and my dance partner, who was married – I was in a relationship – we were photographed kissing when we were on Strictly Come Dancing.”
Sue, 59, probed further on the incident: “Why did that crucify you? Why did that have such an impact?”
Seann went on: “To be totally honest with you, my poor ex, my girlfriend at the time, posted a statement. My girlfriend [at the time] posted a statement and that was the end of me.
“I said sorry. I sat on Jonathan Ross’s TV show and apologised. I sat next to will.i.am and Samuel L. Jackson and apologised.
“That will forever be the weirdest moment of my life and I have to say probably the worst moment of my life.”
Rebecca referred to her ex as “toxic” after his cheating scandal came to light on her birthday.
Rebecca said: “For a brief while, I was one half of the poster couple for toxic love. I hadn’t even known that love shouldn’t look like it did for us, that an insidious loss of joy, opinion and confidence wasn’t what was required of me.
“I just thought relationships took work and compromise, and weren’t always plain sailing, and a whole host of other unhelpful soundbites I had filed away over the years to justify the daily pain.
“Here’s something else about toxicity – once you know about it, you see it everywhere. After I left him, my eyes were open to the toxic messages rammed into pop culture.”
Rebecca continued to write in The Guardian that Seann was a “gaslighter,” adding: “In the two years after the Strictly incident, I worked very hard pulling out of my body the sticky, tar-like residue that gaslighting leaves you with. I met someone new.”
